republican voter fraud is getting swept under the rug here in colorado. tonight the latest on the rnc's voter fraud scandal. good to have you with us. thanks for watching. we're coming to you tr from denver, colorado. the first presidential debate one day away. this is the romney pre-game show. will mitt romney be held accountable for lies and distortions about president obama's record? we got a sneak preview of what happens when mitt romney is forced to tell the truth. a fox affiliate here in denver asked romney to explain what paul ryan could not, how he plans to pay for $5 trillion tax are bk. cut by only eliminating eavoting kicked off the deductions. battlegroundta of ohio da are red voters. >> there's an option. the buckeye state looking . you could say everybody is going to get up to a deduction and you but attemp to kill off early vong by republicans have obama supporters camd out at could use your home mortgage deduction or others, health care deduction and fill that bucket, if you will, the $17,000 bucket polling stationsround ohio that way and higher income
people might have a lower last night as partf the slee number. >> at least the plan has a name. it's the bucket plan. mitt romney will cap deductions t the vote effort. polls ofcially opened at 8:0 at $17,000 for all americans. a.m. this morning and thousands of voters have already cast their ballots. this is good news for president oba as early voters favor mocrats. is that good for the middle first day voter turnover in class? do the math. lucas county doubled that in for rich americans, the cap, it 2008. just might be lower than that. he was very vague on that point of the 928 vot tre were as well. the big problem with romney's bucket plan besides being 696 democrats, 40 republicans, hilarious is it would only cover 192 with no affiation. $1 to $2 trillion of the $5 trillion tax cut. mielle obaired up voters in cincinnati today. she waed supporterthe figh. that's according to the tax policy center. they figured it out. even when romney gives specifics >> earlyr1 voting starts tay.. he doesn't answer the questions. e we still don't know how he we need you to sign up to make phoncalls,o knock on drsto helpo plans to pay for the tax cuts without hurting the middle class. paul ryan is sticking to his reason for not giving any to tu k to everybody you specifics to chris wallace on know fox news. mi them at'st ake in he said he had no time. this electio >> i'm going to give you the time now to answer the question. shortly after that, the obama mplying
>> when i start getting the numbers. voters in cincinnati >> that's right. >> ryan was given the time by president obama's mpaign i bloomberg television. simply outworking the romney camp in ohio. thffices d he had a new excuse for not compared to 36 for rney. being specific. 38% of the ohio vote was cast he says mitt romney can't show congress all of his cards before he gets elected. early bere the ection in 2008.%. >> you don't say to congress to democrats you want to work with, take it or leave it. it's all my way or the highway. you say here's my framework. in their power to block the vote obviously, the numbers add up. in ohio, but thanks toolid work from the ama campaign, we have shone that. eir efforts are failing early >> hang on a second. . ryan says they have shown these the latest quinnc numbers and shown how they work. ama with a 10-inlead over folks, they have not. it's impossible to show how numbers work when you refuse to but beware. provide the numbers. michael delaware caucus had the this is what the debate ad back in 198 moderator and the american this is a long haul, but it's a people need to watch out for great star tomorrow night to be on guard night in our svey, i asked will mitt romney continue his campaign of lies at tomoow's against. the romney campaign shows time debate? and time again that they are willing to flat out lie whenever it just suits the evening, when >>ng u> comi the good news and bad news for voters. a key court casend voter
it suits them just fine, they will throw it out there and hope it sticks to the wall. most of the keystones to regist scandal. romney's campaign are based on lies and distortions. detail when is we come back. @$ let's go through them all. romney says president obama stole billions from medicare. the president cut wasteful spending. romney's camp created an entire ad campaign about president obama revoking the work requirement from welfare. the ads were totally debunked but romney kept airing them any way and stands by them today. good debate talk tomorrow night. mitt romney says he's going to repeal obama care and replace it with something to keep people from being uninsured. but an analysis from the commonwealth fund shows mitt romney would leave 72 million more people uninsured, 12 million higher than before obama care. recently mitt romney said his campaign never ran any intentionally false advertising. we have been ab chutely spot-on, he said.
any time there's anything that's been a miss we correct it or remove it. i kind of talk like romney, don't i? this is coming from a guy whose first campaign ad against barack obama presented a quote about john mccain and pretended that president obama was saying it about himself. they defended the ad as honest. romney is running on his business create. he says he created 100,000 jobs as the ce ork as bain. he claimed he had no involvement with managing bain after 1999. but wait a minute. sec filings show him as the ceo and sole stake holder in the company for three additional years. now during those years, what happened? thousands of people were laid off in the bain companies while mitt romney profited. speaking of bain, romney says he's going to get tough on china
as president if he's elected. even though his recent tax returns show that he was making investment money all from chinese internet companies accused of stealing american content. he says president obama apologizes for america overseas even though not a single transcript ever shows him apologizing. when mitt romney had a chance to weigh in on the international incident, what did he do? he accused president obama of sympathizing with american enemies. back here at home, romney says the stimulus did not create a single job even though the budget office says it created as 3.3 million jobs. we got more. president obama raised taxes on the the middle class until last week when he slipped up and said president obama never raised taxes but will raise them soon. it was mitt romney who said let detroit go bankrupt.
then he saw what happened after the automobile loan from the federal government saved 1.5 million american jobs and ohio's economy. and all of a sudden, mitt romney says the auto loan, that was just a good idea. and mitt romney says he will be the president for all americans. don't forget that. even though he was caught on tape saying he can never convince 47% of americans to take responsibility for themselves. this is why mitt romney can't be let off the hook in the debate tomorrow night. but it's hard to press him on these issues when he doesn't even answer the questions. here it is. >> what is the biggest misconception about you in the public debate right now? >> we'll have to create more jobs, have less debt and shrink the size of government. in the big finh tonight, the republicans suffered a setback in court. >> misconceptions about you? republics in pennia ylva tried to suppress the vote tough voter i.d.aw. >> you get to ask the questions it could have kept at least you want and i get to give the answers i want. 758,000 people from voting. but today the judge blocked a >> i hope there's a moment like that tomorrow night. key part of the law. not going to be easy for jim
lehrer. even if romney won't answer for his ruling means voters will be asked r an i. but they can go ahead and vote them, it needs to be spelled out without one. thruling only covers thi loud and clear to the american people who have been lied to. election. the decision is bad news for mitt romney has not been repuicanin pennsylvani straight with americans on where r thearlie year one of the he stands and where he wants to party leaders boasted the law take the country and there's no would help mitt romney win the better platform than for the election. president to take him to the house. >> voter i.d., whi is gog to how can you expect him to be allow mitt romney to win the straight with you as president state of pennsylvania, done. >> pennsylvania is just one of when he can't even run his own campaign? 41 stateto pass rerictive get your cell phones out. tonight's question, will mitt romney continue his campaign of lies at tomorrow's debate? new voting laws since president obama won in 2008. text a for yes or b or no. so far 17 states have you can always go to our blog. successfully pasd restrictive we'll bring you the results votesing laws since president later on in the show. oba won the white hous republicans in ohio tried joining me is robert gibbs, senior obama campaign adviser. great to have you with us e gop tried to purge the voter tonight. roles in florida. there's so much meat on the bones here. the republicans have cimed all we have laid out all of the along they are try stop distortions and the lies that we voter fraud. but look what happens. have seen from the romney it turns outhey are the ones campaign. who were cheating.
